Homebased English Tutors

A new Korean website that offers online English tutorials will open this year. They are looking for homebased English teachers. This job offers a lot of flexibility, teachers may select their teaching hours and days. Part timers, teachers, students, call center agents and anyone who has good English communication skills may apply.

Please follow the instructions to facilitate the process.

The Qualifications:

* Good command of the English language, meaning can understand and speak English well, no to minimal grammatical errors.
* A clear voice with a good accent. You don't need to have an American or British accent, a neutral accent would be best as long as you don't have a strong Filipino accent (Bisaya, Ilocano, etc.)
* Good attitude towards work. Filipinos have the reputation of always being late, and some, always absent.
* Have a pleasant personality and can accept constructive criticism.

Take note that it doesn't matter if you are a college graduate or not. Your skill and attitude are more important that a diploma.

The Requirements:

1. A reliable computer. Minimun specs: XP with at least 500MB RAM.
2. Stable Internet connection. Broadband or DSL, wired is preferred but not necessary.
3. Webcam
4. Headset or mic and speakers
5. Skype program. You may download this from www.skype.com.
6. Updated resume.

The instructions:
You have to send your updated resume to the Tutor Manager Cristy, include your skype ID as well. Her e-mail address is cziley2k2 [at] uplink.com.ph. Tell her you got this information from Fiona. On the subject line of your e-mail, put your name and the position. Example: Juan Dela Cruz - Online Tutor.

Once you've sent your resume, you may add her to your Skype contact list. Her Skype ID is edelweiss322. Just mention when you are requesting to be added that you are an applicant. Please wait for her response as she may not be able to immediately do this since she is also teaching and then does her interviews when she has the time. She will schedule you for an interview and also a demo. She will not proceed with the demo if you do not have your webcam installed so please be prepared.

You may think that we pay too much attention to detail or are strict. Actually, I am giving you all these instructions to facilitate the screening process. Don't be intimidated by my e-mail. Just follow the instructions here and you'll be fine.

For the rate, you need to ask teacher Cristy that. It's ok to ask her. You may ask her anything you want as long as it's related to the job.

I hope my instructions were clear. The site will open in 2 months and they are looking for 10 - 20 teachers to start the ball rolling.

Good luck!

  • Location: Anywhere
  • Compensation: To be discussed
  • Telecommuting is ok.
  • This is a part-time job.
